BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Authorities say an Elizabethtown man faces charges after allegedly shooting his brother.

Tony Elmore Lewis, 51, has been charged with attempted murder, according to Cpt. Hester with the Bladen County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies were dispatched to the scene of a shooting at a home in the 90 block of Curtis Lewis Road around 5 p.m. Tuesday. Upon arrival, they found the victim, Terry Devane Lewis of Dublin, in the front yard with a shotgun wound to his stomach.
